INTRODUCTION 

A short history of the development of the British Museum Collec- 
tion of Meteorites, and an account of the characters and of the 
phenomena attending the fall of these bodies, are given in the 
separately-published " Introduction to the Study of Meteorites " 
prepared by the late Sir Lazarus Fletcher. 

The present Catalogue, so far as it relates to specimens in the 
British Museum Collection, is intended to replace the list of meteorites 
which hitherto has been appended to that " Introduction." 

In this Catalogue the data supplied for each meteorite include : 
the name by which it is most generally known; the locality; the 
date of fall or find ; the chief synonyms ; the classificatory descrip- 
tive name ; details and original weight * of the fall or find ; refer- 
ences to the literature; the present repository (besides the British 
Museum) of the main masses ; f and a list of the specimens % 
(with their weights in grams) representing the fall in the British 
Museum Collection. The references to the literature are given : for 
details of the fall or find ; for good descriptions ; and for reliable 
chemical analyses, the results of which are indicated by stating 
approximately, (1) the percentage (/) of nickeliferous iron; (2) the 
ratio (n) of the percentage of iron to that of nickel in the nickeliferous 
iron ; and (3) the ratio (m) of the molecules of MgO to those of FeO in 
the magnesian silicates. No attempt is made to give a complete 
bibliography of each fall as in Wiilfing's well-known work,f but the 
references cited have been chosen so as to supply the main and 
essential facts, so far as at present known, for each meteorite. 
References, therefore, are not generally given to old chemical analyses 
which are only of historic interest, nor to the earlier descriptions 

* Generally in grams, but in pounds avoirdupois when the weight is so 
given in the original account in English of the fall. 

f Drawn chiefly from data given in E. A. Wiilfing's Catalogue, Die Meteoriten 
in Sammlungen, Tiibingen, 1897; in the more recent (but for European 
Collections mostly pre-war) Catalogues of the Collections in the Museums of 
Calcutta, Chicago, Paris, Prague, Vienna, Washington, etc. ; and in O. C. 
Farrington's Catalogue of Meteorites of North America (Mem. Xat. Acad. Sci. 
Washington, 1915, vol. 13). 

j Arranged in order of decreasing weights. Mention is made of complete 
or nearly complete stones and slices of irons, but no detailed descriptions are 
given of pieces. Such descriptions occur in some catalogues, but appear to 
be of little utility, as they consist for the most part of a repetition of the char- 
acters already indicated by the classificatory descriptive name. 



vi INTRODUCTION 

(such as those of A. Brezina *) of the microscopic characters which 
served to determine the position of a meteorite in the Tschermak- 
Brezina classification and are now fairly well indicated by the name 
given to it in that system. 

In the catalogue the name adopted to designate a meteoric fall 
has been chosen as the one most generally accepted and of long- 
standing^ and, in cases of doubt, as the one used in the catalogues 
of the most important collections in the country in which the 
meteorite fell. Thus for North American meteorites the names 
adopted are for the most part those used in the catalogues of G. P. 
Merrill and 0. C. Farrington of the collections of the United States 
National Museum in Washington, and the Field Museum of Natural 
History in Chicago respectively. 

The system of classification adopted in the Catalogue is that of 
Tschermak and Brezina as modified by the writer. J 

According to this system, the three main divisions, based on the 
relative amounts of nickeliferous iron and stony matter, are : — 

I. Meteoric Irons or Siderites, consisting mainly of nickeliferous 

iron. 
II. Meteoric Stony-irons or Siderolites, in which iron and stony 

matter are both in large amounts. 
III. Meteoric Stones or Aerolites, consisting mainly of stony matter, 
with nickeliferous iron and troilite, when present, scattered 
through it as small grains; this last division being sub- 
divided into : — 

(a) Chondritic Meteoric Stones or Chondrites, containing 

chondrules. 
(P) Non-chondritic Meteoric Stones or Achondrites, in 

which chondrules are absent. 

Division I (Irons) is divided according to structure, and generally 
in order of increasing percentages of nickel, into the following 
groups : — 

(a) Nickel-poor Ataxites, with nickel mostly less than 6 per cent. 

(b) Hexahedrites, in which nickel is about 7 per cent. 

(c) Octahedrites, which, according to the width of the kamacite 

bands and generally to increasing percentages of nickel 
(from about 7 to 14), are divided into : — 
Coarsest, coarse, medium, fine, and finest octahedrites. 

* Catalogues of the collection of meteorites in the Natural History Museum, 
Vienna (Jahrb. geol. Reichsanst. Wien, 1885, vol. 35 pp. 151-2*76; Ann. 
Naturhist. Hofmus. Wien, 1895, vol. 10, pp. 231-370). 

f For this reason such names as Cronstad, Jhung, and Monroe are retained, 
although Kroonstad, Jhang, and Flows may be more correct from the point 
of view of spelling or locality, and cross-references are given to them. For the 
same reason, for Russian meteorites the original transliteration of the names 
has been generally kept, except that the German ' w ' has been changed to ' v ' : 
in some cases a cross-reference is given to an alternative transliteration.

pp. 51-03. 



INTRODUCTION vii 

(d) Ataxites. with medium percentages of nickel (about 7 to 14), 

probably mostly altered Octahedrites (Metabolites). 

(e) Nickel-rich Ataxites, with nickel generally greater than 

14 per cent. 

4 

Division II (Stony-irons) is divided into : — 

(a) Olivine Stony-irons, or PoUasites. 

(b) Bronzite-asmanite Stony-irons, or Sideropkyres. 

(c) Bronzite-olivine Stony-irons, or Lodranites. 

(d) Hypersthene-anorthite Stony-irons, or Mesosiderites. 

Division Ilia (Chondrites) is divided, according to increasing 
percentages of nickel in the nickeliferous iron and corresponding 
increase of ferrous oxide in the magnesian silicates, into : — 

(a) Enstatite-chondrites. 

(b) Bronzite-cJwndrites. 

(c) Hypersthene-chondrites. 

To the members of each of these groups are applied the 
qualifications according to colour (white, intermediate, grey, black) ; 
structure (crystalline, spherical, brecciated, veined) ; and composition 
(carbonaceous), etc., used in the Tschermak-Brezina classification. 

Division 111(3 (Achondrites) is divided, according to the content 
of lime, into : — 

(a) Calcium-poor Achondrites which are sub-divided into 

(1) Enstatite-achondrites or Aubrites, corresponding to En- 

statite-chondrites. 

(2) Clinobronzite-olivine-achondrites or Ureilites, corresponding 

to Bronzite-chondrites. 

(3) Hypersthene-olivine-achondrites > 

or Amphote rites (and Rodites) 

(4) Hypersthene-achondrites 

or Diogenites Hypersthene-chondrites. 

(5) Olivine-achondrites 

or Chassignites 

(b) Calcium-rich Achondrites, which are subdivided into 

(1) Augite-achondrites or Angrites. 

(2) Diopside-olivine-achondrites or Nakhlites. 

(3) Clinohypersthene-anorthite-achondrites or Eucrites ; includ- 

ing Sherghottites in which anorthite is replaced by 
maskelynite. 

(4) Hypersthene - clinohypersthene - anorthite - achondrites or 
S Howardites. 

The scheme of the above classification is embodied in the following 
table : —

INTRODUCTION ix 

In the Catalogue the attempt is made to include the names of 
all * meteorites known up to the end of the year 1922, and the falls 
which are not yet represented by specimens in the British Museum 
Collection are marked by an asterisk (*) in order to call attention 
to them as desiderata. 

* A few names of doubtful meteorites of vague locality, or of which the 
history has been lost, such as Manzanares, Thunder Bay, etc., which are 
mentioned in Wulfing's book or in old catalogues, are omitted, since their 
perpetuation appears to serve no useful purpose.

as given earlier by mistake), and Haleb is identical with Aleppo. A 
specimen had been offered to the Paris Museum by Dr. Halid Edhem Bey, 
by mistake, as from Tirnova, Roumelia (S. Meunier, Comptes Rendus

Two large masses, one ring-shaped (the Signet or Irwin- Ainsa Iron) of 
688 kg. and the other (the Carlelon Iron) of 287 kg., known for centuries, 
had been transported to Tucson from the Puerta de los Muchacos, a pass 
20-30 miles south of that town, and were used as anvils ; first mentioned by 
J. F. Velasco in 1850 (L. Fletcher, Mineral. Mag., 1890, vol. 9, p. 16 (full

sent by General J. H. Carleton to San Francisco (Proc. Californian Acad. 
Nat. Sci., San Francisco, 1863, vol. 3, pt. 1, p. 33). Analyses were made 
by J. L. Smith, F. A. Genth, and G. J. Brush (see L. Fletcher, I.e.). More
